Maintaining the dignity and independence in your lifestyle well into your twilight years is one of the best ways to age gracefully.
You can achieve this by ensuring your home is equipped to your needs, providing you with a safe and accessible home life where you can relax and enjoy yourself.
For instance, adding a stairlift to your home is a surprisingly straightforward way to enable easy access.
Stairlifts can be installed on a range of staircases including straight and curved staircases, fitting to the stairs, not the wall, which typically means no structural changes to your home are required.
Simon Hughes of Acorn Stairlifts says their products “can provide a very affordable alternative to the hassle of selling up and moving home and in many cases funding is available to assist with the cost,” he says.
“Each stairlift is individually tailored to your specific staircase and can be fully installed from as little as $4,200.”
To determine a quote for your stairlift, a stairlift company will send a representative to your home to conduct a feasibility study.
This is also a good opportunity for you to discuss issues such as a seated or standing platform, and height adjustability.
You may wish to have your occupational therapist present to assist in fitting the stairlift to your needs.
Acorn Stairlifts also normally offer installation in a matter of days, not weeks.
